Depends: If you have asthma, daily use of Pulmicort may help but even then takes about 2 -3 wks to find out. Asthavent would be for as needed use. If you have runny nose, you will need a nasal steroid. We need to rule out other causes of cough as well including sinusitis. Perhaps it is time for you to consult an allergist.
